Tablescape Tuesday - #1

There is a wonderful new blog, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, and she is hosting Tablescape Tuesday. I have to apologize to all my regular blog readers that these pictures I have posted before. I had every intention of doing a new tablescape for today, but ended up being away from home all day yesterday and now today I am kinda tired. But I wanted to participate and maybe someone in blogland will enjoy seeing them. This table I did at my friend Candy's home for our black and white tea. The picture actually was taken in color, but it looks all black and white.
This was my valentines table. The plates and napkins were from Target.
This is one of my Christmas tablescapes. I use this between Christmas and New Years.
Easter. Again, Target plates. Placemats were from our grocery store. And if you can see the glasses. Everyone loves those glasses and thinks they are antiques. Nope, Dollar Tree. And as my husband would add right here....a dollar!

This is such a fun table. I used my china. It was for a few ladies last summer. The chairs are picture frames. I put their names in them. I glued daisies to small grapevine wreathes for the napkin wreaths because my china has daisies on them. The centerpiece was all flowers and flip flop candles and outdoor things. Why not outside? Well, it probably was 110 degrees!
I had to show my beautiful tea set that my husband bought for me. I think next time I put it out I will use a burgandy tablecloth. But I just used white with cream accents.
This is another all white tablescape. I love those placemats!

Patriotic. BTW, next year, I have a brand spanking new tea pot to add to the table. Cracker Barrel clearance....$4.00.

Well, that is all the pictures I could find today. Hope you all are having a good week...

Do you own a storage facility you haven't told me about?

Where do you keep all this stuff.

Pretty as can be.

My tabletop is called "Mess d'LaRayne" and it's currently unavailable for viewing.

Love ya,

Hey! Steve and I are going to Vegas in Oct with friends and seeing Phantom, too!! It was fun reading about your experience...we'll be sitting a little bit behind the chandy--can't wait! (It'll be our third time seeing it, but haven't seen it in Vegas..)

Susan (Moonlight and Magnolias on RMS) said...

Hi! Your tablescapes are AWESOME btw,...I've never seen them so I really enjoyed your posting! :-) I'm not guite sure what is going on with RMS but I noticed, and several other folks have told me, that they can't pull folks up by searching by their names. I gave up after I tried to find someone the other day. My name at RMS is:
moonlightandmagnolias. If you can't pull it up...try this. Go to the "Porch" category. Click on the top rated category and my porch may still be somewhere in the first few pages, I think. Just click on the pic of my porch and you can see my other postings from there...hope that helps. Thanks so much for participating in the fun today! Hope you will again next Tuesday! :-) Susan

You really have quite the flair. All of your tables are very creative. I thought the little lawn chairs idea was so cute! ~ Robyn

The Berry's Patch said...

Wow, they all look great. You not only know how to shop, you know how to put together tablescapes. Mine never turn out that cute. What is your secret? Cute stuff! What a great idea using the picture frames for place settings.

Sweet Designs said...

You have some very nice tablescapes, it is alway fun to find another "dish person" LOL

Kelli said...

Your tablescapes are beautiful! I love the snowmen and the all white. So pretty!

Sweet Designs said...

Hi, just wanted to drop back in to answer your question about how many dishes I buy. Generally only 4 sets, but if I really love something and feel I will use the setting alot, then I buy 8 or more. I do love dishes sigh... LOL
Thanks for the nice comments on my blog
Hugs, Judith

I love your tablescapes! You have a real talent with that! I just wanted to tell you a spoke of you on my post today regarding the song tag. Now, I just recently did that, but I still shared your tag. Dana

Shelia said...

Hi Ceekay! Yes, we may have walked right past each other! Isn't that funny!! I love going to the Bellagio and looking at the pretties! We've stayed there a few times and I really like it.
Hope you've had a wonderful day!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

You are, after all, the queen of tablescapes for good reason! Of course there's a gorgeous table for every occasion!
XOXO Kathy

I love all the table settings -- very clever and so festive.

Boy....did I chuckle at the DIVA post. The vision was too much.

What a neat meme. I loved seeing all your tablescapes.
That is what I have been wanting to do for Show and Tell.
That is why I did the dishes today.
I can't wait till I get a good camera again.
Your tablescapes are really pretty and very creative.
Thanks for sharing them.

Debbie...I don't know how to contact you, but please feel free to copy any of my tablescape designs. Copying is the greatest form of flattery.
